With the advent of wavelength routing and dynamic, reconfigurable optical networks,
new demands are being made in the design and operation of optical amplifiers.
Amplified WDM Networks provides, for the first time, a comprehensive review
of optical amplifier technology in the context of these recent advances in the
field. It demonstrates how to manage the trade-offs between amplifier design,
network architecture and system management and operation.
Amplified WDM Networks provides an overview of optical amplifiers and reconfigurable
networks before examining in greater detail the issues of importance to network
operators and equipment manufacturers, including 40G and 100G transmission.
Optical amplifier design is fully considered, focusing on fundamentals, design
solutions and amplifier performance limitations. Finally, Optically
Amplified WDM Networks discusses other emerging applications for optical
amplifiers such as optical networks for high data rate systems, free space systems,
long single span links and optical digital networks.
Amplified WDM Networks will be of great value to R&D engineers, network
and systems engineers, telecommunications service providers, component suppliers,
industry analysts, network operators, postgraduate students, academics and anyone
seeking to understand emerging trends in optical networks and the consequent
changes in optical amplifier design, features and applications.
